Is “Hey” Still For Horses?

Think about the phone calls and emails you have received lately. How many of them have started with “Hey” followed by your name, or just “Hey!”? I’d wager that it has been more than just a few, and I wonder when we lost track of the more polite greetings like “hi,” or better, “hello.”

As the use of home phones continues to dwindle and caller ID on cell phones is standard, there is less of a need to identify who has called, making “Hey, do you want to grab lunch?” a perfectly common conversation opener.

I’d suggest a return back to our beloved “hi” and “hello” in your next phone call or email. Slow down and open the conversation without rushing into questions or requests. You might find that you like it!
